Requirements for Volunteering
The Volunteer Services Department at Parker Adventist Hospital can be summed up in one simple but essential concept - we're all about service! Service to the patient, families, hospital, staff, visitors, community and each other.
Volunteer service is a responsibility that requires a definite commitment of time, energy and desire to serve and therefore requires preparation, orientation and training.
Prospective volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, willing to commit to a four hour volunteer shift one day per week, for a minimum of six months (minimum of 100 hours of volunteer service in one year) and complete the following before receiving a service assignment:
- Attend a Volunteer Information Session.
- Complete the volunteer application (provided at the information session) and provide two non-family member references.
- Complete the Medical Health Screening provided by our Employee Health Nurse including:
- 2 Step TB Skin test (Tuberculin Skin Test)
- Flu Vaccination
- Complete Criminal Background Screening.
- Attend volunteer orientation and training for your specific volunteer position.
- Obtain ID badge and uniform.
Once this process is complete, volunteers receive a written service description outlining the assignment and tasks. Volunteers are required to attend regularly scheduled safety training and volunteer meetings and remain current with provided biennial TB skin testing and annual flu vaccinations.
